Three Little Buddhas

Sometimes when things are overwhelming (the news, for example) it's easier for me to focus on small things. The temples here in Chaing Mai are truly impressive. Some large, some small, most very old, and all completely covered in glitter and gold. It's hard not to take pictures of all that, and I do, but I end up liking the "unimpressive" details best.

These three little buddha statues were placed in random, out-of- the- way spots in various temples.

 I wonder how and why they got where they did.
I will never know, but somehow they let me feel part of a peaceful moment.
